HIS GIRL FRIDAY (1940; 92 minutes)
Thursday, July 14
A whirlwind of overlapping dialogue and plot twists, this Howard Hawks classic features hard-nosed newspaper reporter Hildy Johnson (Rosalind Russell) about to forsake journalism to marry a dolt. Her editor and ex-husband, Walter Burns (the mischievous Cary Grant), plots to win her back by leading her to a late-breaking headliner about a political execution, a story that Walter knows Hildy can’t pass up. Things get comically complicated in this second screen version of the Ben Hecht/Charles MacArthur play The Front Page.
